Sant jarnail singh ji and motorcycles

Recommended Posts

Wjkk wjkf. I had a question regarding sant jarnail singh. In many of sant jis speeches he does benti to the sangat that every pind in punjab must have revolvers and a motorcycle. I understand the revolver part because sikhs need to keep shastars, but i do not understand why does every pind need a motorcycle. Can anyone in the sangat please explain this to me. Bulha chuka kehma muaf. Wjkk wjkf

A mode of transportation needed to travel. In 80's very few (extremely few) could afford a car- so only option was a bike.

Even bikes must hv been costly back then. Also bullet nd royal enfield were only options

The reason motorcycles are better for protected a pind, or even a city over a car is because while a motorcycle requires better balance, what it offers is higher mobility over a car or a truck. Also unlike a car, motorcycles are completely in the open which would allow them more accurate ways to shoot a firearm.

Sant Ji's advice hearkens back to the way puraatan Sikhs waged war. Sikhs were outnumbered then, as they were outnumbered in the 80's (and now), and the most effective way for an outnumbered, outgunned group to fight against steep odds is to employ hit and run tactics. This was why virtually every Sikh soldier of the misl era fought in a singular way, mounted on a nimble horse and armed with a matchlock rifle. The motorcycles of today are like the horses of yesteryear, allowing Singhs to pick off their enemies with deadly precision from a distance, and then beat a swift retreat to continue the fight later. Sikhs would never have won in a plain firefight against the GOI, the motorcycle enabled kharkus to eliminate strategically important targets quickly and easily, and then flee, threading through narrow gaps in the streets and gallis in a way that a gaddi just can't. Basically it was the perfect vehicle for guerilla warfare and the assassination of panth dhokiaan.

    • Suleman reminds me of the vampires from the movie interview with the vampire! The vampires are sad and lonely, wondering around aimlessly, century after century and not able to free themselves from their bodies! Suleman says the same thing, how people in the joon of ghosts wonder around without aim and they feed on filth and rot. 
    • Its been 10 days since you posted this I wanted to welcome you too. It's always never late. I am a little new too so welcome to this amazing website where we can talk about our problems or ask reasonable questions. I hope you'll take as much laha and learn something from here. Have a blessed day ahead! 🌻✨
    • Jaggi aside, none of the above really contradicts Sikhi, because it's knowledge from the Vedic granths that even our gianis and parcharaks have to study for a grounding in Dharmic philosophy.  I know that if Sikh parchaar occasionally veered towards this really interesting type of spiritual and holistic approach it would attract many lapsed Punjabis, particularly those raised in the West, who currently feel quite disconnected and adrift but can't quite put their finger on how to get themselves out of various ruts and troughs. It might also help warding off the vulture-like attention of other faiths seeking easy converts. Our history and the malign affects of Brahmanical mischief are essential to understand who we are, where we came from, and why we're in the shape we currently are, but some deeper theory of how the individual can enact day-to-day positive spiritual change, is needed for those who are a little more thoughtful and inquisitive.
    • I don't know but at times if I have done a mistake, I really feel guilty and bad and I really wish to repent it. I deserve to apologise to you because I definitely have done a mistake. Maharaj kirpa karan sab de upar
